PENALTIES

PENALTIES ARE A PART OF LIFE.  WE ALL HAVE TO PAY A PENALTY AS SOME POINT WHEN WE DO SOMETHING WRONG EITHER LEGALLY, OR EMOTIONALLY.  IT MAY SEEEM THAT WHEN WE DO SOMETHING WE KNOW IS WRONG, WE GOT AWAY WITH IT, BUT SOMEHOW, WE PAY A PENALTY OR PRICE.  THIS PENALTY COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS THE WAY WE FEEL ABOUT OURSELVES FOR DOING THIS WRONG THING.  OR, IT COULD BE SOMETHING MORE APPARENT.   PENALTIES CAN EVEN BE A DIRECT RESULT OF SOMEONE COMMITTING MURDER, WHEN OR IF THEY GET CAUGHT.  THEY GIVE THEIR LIFE FOR THIS PENALTY IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER.  THEY EITHER SPEND THEIR LIFE IN PRISON, OR THEY SUFFER THE DEATH PENALTY.  LETS LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF PENALTY THAT BEST FITS WHAT I AM WRITING ABOUT TODAY.  

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF PENALTIES-1.  A PUNISHMENT IMPOSED FOR BREAKING A LAW OR CONTRACT.  2.  A DISADVANTAGE OR UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCE SUFFERED AS THE RESULT OF AN ACTION OR CIRCUMSTANCE.

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-A PRICE WE PAY WITH OUR CONSCIENCE, OR WITH THE LAW FOR DOING SOMETHING WRONG.  IN RARE CIRCUMSTANCES THERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT TRULY HAVE NO CONSCIENCE.  THEY SUFFER IN SOME WAY, HOWEVER BECAUSE THEY ARE SOCIOPATHIC, AND ARE UNABLE TO FEEL EMOTIONS TO THE DEGREE WE DO OR NOT AT ALL.  WE MAY NOT SEE A PENALTY AS A DIRECT RESULT, BUT ULTIMATELY, THE PRICE IS PAID IN SOME FORM OF KARMA.  

THE ABOVE, IS MY OPINION, NOT A FACT.  HOWEVER, IT IS FIRMLY WHAT I HAVE SEEN IN MY OWN LIFE AND OTHER INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE CONFIDED IN ME.  FORTUNATELY, MOST OF US DO HAVE A CONSCIENCE.  WE PAY A PENALTY FOR ANYTHING WE’VE DONE THAT HURTS OURSELF OR ANOTHER.  SOMETIMES IN LIFE, WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO APOLOGIZE FOR SOMETHING WE’VE DONE WRONG TO ANOTHER PERSON.  IT IS STRICTLY UP TO THEM WHETHER THEY CHOOSE TO ACCEPT THE APOLOGY OR NOT.  WHEN WE APOLOGIZE TO ANOTHER PERSON WHEN WE’VE HURT THEM IN SOME WAY, WE ABSOLVE SOME OF THE GUILT WE FEEL, EVEN WHEN THEY CHOOSE NOT TO ACCEPT THE APOLOGY.  

WE DO NOT CONTROL OTHER PEOPLE, OR THINGS THAT MAY HAPPEN IN LIFE WHICH  WE DO NOT HAVE A DIRECT SAY IN.  FOR EXAMPLE, WHAT OTHER’S CHOOSE TO DO, I HAVE FOUND, NO MATTER WHAT ADVICE THEY ASK US FOR, IS USUALLY WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO WITH OR WITHOUT OUR ADVICE.  THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS TO THIS AS WELL.  WHEN SOMEONE IS SINCERELY SEEKING DIRECTION, AND THEY ASK US FOR ADVICE, WE THEN HAVE SOME INFLUENCE OVER WHAT THEY ULTIMATELY DECIDE TO DO.  WHEN SOMEONE HAS ALREADY DECIDED WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO, AND ARE SIMPLY LOOKING FOR AN AFFIRMATION FOR THEIR CHOICE, WE WILL HAVE LITTLE OR NO INFLUENCE IN THEIR ULTIMATE DECISIONS.  

WE ONLY CONTROL THE DECISIONS WE MAKE FOR OURSELF, NOT OTHERS.  WE CAN’T BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ANOTHER’S POOR JUDGEMENT UNLESS WE ARE DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN THE OUTCOME OF THE CIRCUMSTANCE.  ULTIMATELY, IT IS THEM WHO PAY A PENALTY IN SOME WAY FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND CHOICES.  

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING ABOUT PENALTIES TODAY.  I HOPE THE JIST OF WHAT YOU LEARN FROM READING THIS IS WE ONLY HAVE POWER OVER OUR OWN CHOICES, AND WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES.  I THINK WHEN WE TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THOSE MISTAKES, THIS IN ITSELF IS SOMETIMES THE PENALTY WE PAY.  WE ARE ALL HUMAN, AFTER ALL AND SOME MISTAKES AND PENALTIES ARE LESSONS IN LIFE WE HAD TO LEARN.  

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL AND BLESSED DAY.  Samantha Leboeuf/DWW
